June 2, 2011 – Segment 3

Join us for a visit to San Domingo, Maryland, a small unincorporated town in Wicomico County.  The town was founded in the early 1800s by free black settlers who purchased the land, and thus were able to secure an economic independence rare for African-American communities of the time.  We traveled to the town’s 1919 school house to meet with a group of residents and discuss the history of their community.

We were joined by:
Newell Quinton, Wyzhir Johnson, Rhuel Goslee, Sylvia Goslee, Devoy Taylor, Floretta White, Alma Hacket, Bernard Quinton and Ruldolph Stanley
